Just a quick update on Lennon and us for today...

Not much has changed for Lennon or us (Thank goodness!!).  Lennon has been at 2 lbs 7 oz for about 3 days now.  Temps have been good, so no need for additional monitoring there :-)  Today, they started adding fortifying powder to her milk.  Breast milk has 20 cals, but with the fortifier, it is upped to 24 cals. When she comes home, she will be taking a fortifier to make it 22 cals.  This way they can up her calories without upping the volume she is eating.  

Lennon has tried to BF a couple more times.  She is doing great with it and works so hard at it.  She will normally try for about 10-15 minutes, then pass out for the rest of her g-tube feeding.  

Lennon is still taking 24% oxygen (21% is room air) for the time being.  The nurse today said that they hadn't really tried to ween her off today.  Maybe tomorrow??

Van gets to go back to his babysitter's tomorrow morning.  He really needs some normalcy back in his life.  I am sure he misses Miss Stacey and Ian too.  He needs to be around his friends; if nothing else to get him off the computer, lol!

Collin is nursing his wounds after the 49ers' loss, but I think he will survive.  

I think that is about it for today.  It is amazing how much you learn to appreciate the quiet days!!

  1. The HMF can really help, but be cautious if she starts having lots of gas or even bloody stools. The HMF caused Claire bloody stools after being on it mixed with breast milk for a few weeks. Just a heads up in case she has any reactions or acts differently. HMF would be my first guess! Glad things are going smoothly on this wonderful rollercoaster ride!
